NetWallah has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings, Wise monks - I seek your wisdom, and tolerance for my choice of the Windoze platform for this module. Not being a "c" programmer, many of these dont make sense, so I seek enlightenment. I'm attempting to install Net::Pcap verision 0.04. I have already installed WinPcap, and copied over the development pack. My C compiler is based on Visual Studio Dot Net. This part of the install was successful:
>perl Makefile.PL INC=-IE:\Progra~1\WinPcap\wpdpack\Include LIBS=-lE: +\Progra~1WinPcap\wpdpack\Lib -lpcap
However, the next part, running nmake gets these errors:

I'm hoping someone will spot something obvious and advise.

    Try to look this node. To install Net::Pcap is not main problem. You should use WinPcap - an architecture for packet capture and network analysis for the Win32 platforms.
    Good luck!

    Simple solution, proven to work:
    Install WinPcap 3.0 from here
    Then, from a DOS prompt: ppm install http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/Net-Pcap.ppd
